You know, rationally I agree. And I'm predicting it to get nominated. But at the same time..... I'm not quite feeling it. I enjoyed the movie enough, but not enough to want to see it with a best picture nomination. It seems like one of those films that could anywhere from three to ten nominations and it wouldn't surprise me.
But, if you asked me to rationalize it, I'd point out that it's the least actor-oriented possible nominee (unless you think Skyfall is a possible best picture nominee. Which would be hilarious) and actors make up the biggest branch. But that's all I got.
